‘Urban Hydro Project’ – food grown in a rooftop utility room

Hydroponic vegetable farm in an unused utility room on the roof of a downtown Nashville condo.

From Kickstarter:

Urban Hydro Project is an urban hydroponic farm that provides fresh, local food YEAR ROUND to people in the Nashville community. We grow lettuces, tomatoes, herbs, and other leafy greens. Here’s the catch…we’re currently only using a quarter of our grow room.

In order to maximize the growth potential of the room and increase our production capabilities, we’re going to need to invest in some new equipment. This will easily allow us to more than quadruple our current production level. Indoor hydroponic farming requires us to monitor and control a wide variety of environmental factors to achieve optimal growth potential of our plants. The funding we receive through this campaign will help us to purchase the necessary devices to more accurately control these factors and grow more plants more efficiently, while allowing us to serve even more people in our community.
